Believe and Expect

Elijah believed and expected
when he prayed earnestly,

and with complete confidence
learned to wait patiently.

He didn't care what heathen said,
but trusted the Lord we're told,
and made his requests known,
then stood fully assured and bold!

Believe and expect like Elijah,
this is what faith is about,
depending on God's faithfulness
not allowing yourself to doubt!
Elijah focused on the Lord,
and God's immutable word,
not on his own instincts
or the chatter that he heard!

James 5:17-18

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
